Comparing High-Efficiency vs. Standard Heating Systems in Dover, NJ
Our customers often ask us whether they’ll actually be saving money by investing in a high-efficiency boiler or furnace. If saving money is your issue, then it’s worth your time to consider the overall cost.
One of the primary considerations is how much it will cost you annually to turn on the heat. On average, a high-efficiency boiler or furnace will save you $270 annually.
The most significant distinction between a high-efficiency heating system and a standard system is in the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). A traditional furnace has a rating of 80%. So 20% of the fuel it uses evaporates into waste. By comparison, a high-efficiency system has an AFUE rating of around 95%. You’re only losing 5% of the fuel consumption. This is where the difference can save you money annually.
While it is true that a high–efficiency system will cost you more up front, you will more than make up the cost over a fifteen-year period. Where you will see the difference is in fuel consumption, energy bills, and repairs & maintenance. So the long-term savings are worth the initial investment.
Rebates and Credits
Something that you may never hear about is the rebates and other credits you can receive for purchasing an ENERGY STAR, AFUE rated boiler or furnace. An Air Temp certified technician can discuss all the additional savings you’ll benefit from by investing in a high-efficiency unit.
